As 2021 draws to a close, Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year.
In July, Deli Star Corporation, a family-owned manufacturer of prepared meal proteins and deli solutions, announced plans to locate its new headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.
“We are excited to welcome Deli Star Corporation to Missouri,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Deli Star will bring nearly $100 million in investment to our state and create nearly 500 new jobs in the St. Louis region. Missouri is a great place for food sector companies like Deli Star to find success, and we look forward to seeing this company grow in our state and provide new opportunities for Missourians.”
The 110,000 square foot facility represents more than $99 million in capital investment and will bring 475 jobs to Missouri when fully operational.
“After conducting a thorough search across multiple states, we are thrilled to call Missouri Deli Star’s new home,” said Justin Siegel, Deli Star CEO. “The Missouri team, including Missouri Partnership, played a pivotal role in the selection process by understanding our needs and working to support our business expansion and ultimately the state of Missouri. We look forward to a successful future in the Show Me State!”
